Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking by Malcolm Gladwell

Argues for snap decisions, discussing the value of training one's mind and senses to focus on a few relevant details when making decisions in daily life, and also examines the dangers of jumping to conclusions, describing situations in which one is "mind-blind."

Recommended by Ms. Munley, Fine Arts Teacher: “I think that this would be a good read for our students because it gives them an inside understanding as to how and or why we make certain ‘blink of an eye’ decisions. It talks about the psychology of why we make the decisions we do, and how we can recognize when we've maybe made a good, or ‘bad’ choice, or categorize someone into stereotype before meeting them.”
